My probation review meeting was postponed to October because the panel is too busy this month, which is painful for me!
This means that I have more time to prepare for it, but my nervousness never slackens and has rather grown.
My preparation includes:
- reading my documents thoroughly (research protocol, one chapter, ethics application and field notes)
- creating a summary of my research and preliminary findings which I will give to the panel orally
- preparing responses to questions ranging from general to specific questions
My goals for Week 38
- continue my preparation and practice
- share transcribed conversation notes from my fieldwork with my supervisors
